Could Pancreatitis Induced Ards
ARDS, now know as acute respiratory distress syndrome, is an acute inflammatory respiratory illness resulting from lung injury that usually leads to respiratory failure and need for intubation/mechanical ventilation. It can be caused by an initial insult directly (as in a pneumonia) or indirectly ...Read more
Complex reasons: ARDS is a condition where the lining of the air sacs in the lung become leaky and allow fluid to flow into the air sacs and making it difficult for the lung to exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide. The cause can be direct injury such as a pneumonia or inhaling a substance that damages the lung or, as is the likely case with you family member, that there is whole body inflammation (pancreatitis). ...Read more
Depends: On the cause of the pancreatitis and the severity. There are predictive models that give you an idea of the expected mortality. ARDS per se is not factored in, oxygenation is. Other parameters include fluid requirement, degree of anemia, liver enzyme changes ...Etc. The mortality can be as high as 90% or as low as 10%. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What are the survival chances if diagnosed with acute pancreatitis with ARDS and arf and unstable blood pressure?
Varible: The scenario carries a high mortality but age and few co-morbidities may allow one to survive it. ARDS implies significant pancreatic damage such that the lungs and subsequent kidneys fail, necessitating mechanical ventilation and dialysis. Attention to fluid balance, nutrition and possible infection improve the odds of survival. ...Read more
My mom is in induced coma with ARDS should she not make it could they pull her out of the coma to say good bye?
Speak with Doctor: Unfortunately giving an answer long-distance is rather difficult in such a case. The best (and in my opinion the only) person who can answer that question is her primary doctor or anesthesiologist. I think it really depends on the severity of her situation as to what the risk of complication might be in bringing her out and then trying to re-induce. All the best to you all in this difficult time. ...Read more

My mom is in hospital icu with pneumonia and developed ARDS she as at 90% oxygen and been in induced acoma for 8 days what are her chances of sur?
Case by case: Large studies suggest that overall mortality from ARDS has decreased over the years to just under 30%. But these are just statistics and every patient is different. In general the healthier they were before ards, and the least number of organs other than lungs involved (kidney, heart, blood pressure...) the better the outcome. Hang in there! ...Read more
If your prior chemical induced pancreatitis with no stone was so severe, can ducts be damaged enough to start to leak digestive fluid in abdomen?
It's possible, but…: It is possible to get pancreatic secretions into the abdomen, resulting in what is called pancreatic ascites, but it is a very rare manifestation of acute or chronic pancreatitis. This can be diagnosed by analyzing a small sample of fluid from the abdomen, if ascites is present. Good luck. ...Read more

Chronic pancreatitis: Chronic pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas that does not heal or improve. This inflammation can cause damage to the pancreas causing it to not work properly. People with chronic pancreatitis can have chronic abdominal pain and should eat a diet low in fat. They should also consider taking pancreatic enzyme supplements (if recommended by a physician). ...Read more
Could one have pancreatitis with only feeling sporadic, moderate left-sided pain when eating or distended? Most of the time no pain is present.
Unlikely.: The pain of pancreatitis is usually central upper belly and quite severe. It does not come and go, and is often accompanied by significant nausea and vomiting. What you describe does not sound pancreas related. Please see a primary doctor for evaluation, which may include blood tests, a thorough physics exam, and possibly imaging (ultrasound or CT) to pinpoint the cause of the problem. ...Read more
Not mistaken contrib: Pancreatitis should not be mistaken for seizures due to the clinical presentation (i.e. Abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting.) however, pancreatitis can lead to severe electrolyte imbalance which can cause a seizure. Also, Depakote and Lamictal used to treat seizures can cause pancreatitis. Also, patients on a ketogenic diet for seizures can develop high triglycerides which can cause pancreatitis. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
